have a big jump in revenue. obama has been saying let's thai the bush tax cuts are going to lapse and we are going to extend the ones for the middle class. republicans are afraid to let him do that up front. it would kill momentum for a tax reform. >> but, but, but why just get rid of the bush tax cuts. if they are so awful, why not get rid of all of them. get rid of all of them for everybody. if tax cuts are the worst thing ever, the bush tax cuts, get rid of the bush tax cuts for everybody and raise billions in revenue. >> right. i think we could probably figure it out sitting around the table. i don't think it's that difficult. they are locked in in political terms. it's a much different issue to them. you can make rational compromises and deals here. the problem is, how do they do it. what's happening is they are at the point where they realize the consequences. at some point, they realize they have to do something other than hold the ground saying this is it. we're not going to change anything. we are at that point and we have little time to work with. >> howard dean, look wh
on this planet as we know it today. that is a very big deal. chris stirewalt joins me, fox news digital politics editor, i should say. so, chris, how long do we have on the planet, life as we know it? what's your take? >> i'm not buying anymore green bananas. [laughter] it sounds like we're headed into real trouble, doesn't it? martha: it sure does. >> well, look, the speaker -- the former speaker, pelosi, now the minority leader in the house demonstrates that before you get to the end on something like this, everybody has to say something totally over the top, and now she's taking her turn. the truth of the matter is we're probably closer now to a deal and closer now to a bipartisan resolution than we ever have been because as house republicans start to saddle up behind john boehner's plan getting over their grumbling about the fact that it doesn't give them everything that they want, it brings us closer to the final vehicle which will get republican and democratic support in the senate and move us on to an increase in the debt ceiling and some kind of a deal. martha: yeah. you know, there are
at this hour? that is the big question that people want the answer to. the lawyers were successful disguising where she went in the overnight hours. even the press not able to keep up with her. cameras shooting this video of casey anthony walking out of the front doors of the orange county jail at 12:11. wearing pink me low shirt, hair in a bun and the primary defense attorney jose baez right by her side. they got in a motorcade, a gray suburban, a cream colored tahoe and white follow-car and drove directly from the location to a bank of of america building in downtown orlando, not far from here, where her other attorney has an office. they went in covered parking garage and pulled a bait and switch. the suv never emerged from the parking garage, but others cars did and it's not clear which one that casey anthony was in. we can tell you around the same time there was police activity across town at a private airport. a private plane was fuelled up and ready to go on the runway, but nobody saw casey anthony boarding the aircraft. officials telling us it was scheduled to carry golfers vacationin
, the next big question seems to be when casey is released, where is she going to go? did mason give any kind of hint about that? >> he said plans are being made. he would not tell me what they are. but he is concerned for her safety, they all are. they do realize the public opinion in this nation deems casey anthony may be one of the most hated women in america right now. so they are taking security precautions for her safety. >> yeah. i want to play some of what he said about their fears for her safety. let's listen. >> sure. yeah. everybody around her knows we have to be concerned for her safety. there's a lot of nuts out there that don't believe in the constitution of the united states, don't believe in the jury system. and all you have to do is go downstairs on the sidewalk and you'll see. >> he wouldn't say, though, what precautions they're taking to ensure her safety, right? >> no. he wouldn't even tell me where she's going to go. he does not think she can live in orlando, florida, or even the state of florida and wonders where in the united states she can become anonymous and just sor
above the average high this time of year, which is 89. but still, big break from the extreme heat we've seen the last few days. by late afternoon, though, we could get some thunderstorms, some of which could produce heavy downpours, may cause localized flooding. here's a look at the traffic. danella, good morning. >>> good morning, and happy monday. let's start off with a look at some of our local bridges. this is the key bridge so far. looks excellent. no delays or accidents to report for you. i can tell you, d.c., your southeast bridges are good. all, no accidents or major delays to report to you at this time. and looking at 66, you are going to see some volume as you head east. right here, and that volume's going to continue as you make your way toward the beltway. inside and outside the beltway on 66, it's clear, with no accidents to report. back to you eun and joe. >> thank you. >>> new from overnight, one firefighter has been -- has been injured in a rather -- hospitalized for exhaustion while battling a house fire in hyattsville in prince georges county. the fire started at a
this thing started last sunday. as you say, the president has said he wants this big deal, but this thing broke up today. the meeting ended with the president telling these leader toss go back to their members and ask them what do they think can pass and then report back to the president with something that they believe can pass by this saturday morning. they're not even having a meeting tomorrow. now, despite all that, i am told by my sources that there's not a lot of optimism that this particular negotiating process here at the white house is going to actually end up lead together real deal, and a lot of effort and attention is now turning to a different process that's happening in the u.s. senate and another all the ate deal that's being worked out between the two senate leaders that could instead end up raising the debt ceiling. a lot of hope is centered there, anderson. >> basically what is that deal, that negotiation based on? harry reid and mitch mcconnell? >> reid-mcconnell deal. it would effectively raise the debt ceiling in a negative vote which would allow for spending cuts tha
out the president has a big birthday bash scheduled for august 3rd, celebrities flying in from all over. and lo and behold, august 2nd is the deadline for getting something done so that he can have this massive -- maybe the biggest fundraising dinner in history for a birthday celebration. >> and here's iowa congressman steve king. >> it's not default. they've been calling it default to try to stampede people into taking a bad deal here in this congress. the american people understand this. they understand at least intuitively that it would be the president who would willfully default if there's to be a default. i'd like to think the investor markets understand that, too. >> keeping them honest, there's little reason to think that's true. and plenty of people in the gop establishment and the business community sending up warning flairs. officials at the bond rating company standard & poors today briefing freshman republicans about what might happen. political reporting tonight they were cautioned that one possibility is "a death spiral in the bond market". s & p is already on record
. but they seem to be quite optimistic they're moving towards something and a big endorsement, this earlier today from the top negotiator democrat in the senate, harry reid. a lot of moving parts. trying to get a hold on t. and talk about republicans. do we know where they stand on the approval of this deal? >> reporter: yeah. that is a big question, because the house republicans, you saw just how hard it was for the house republican leadership to get their own bill through the house, and to get their own members onboard for this deal. talking about a compromise, you can only guess that might be even a tougher sale, possibly. we haven't heard yet from house speaker john boehner or house leadership and where they stand on things. we know, though, however, we are told by a top senate republican leadership aide that they're not there yet and still working. so it seems like they're still working on the deal. clearly, not at a place harry reid is at this point and that's a big question of where are republicans going to stand on this? are they going to endorse it and what their issues are with it. don?
to rein in big government spending and prevent tax increases. >> the majority of the house has to approve spending and that's tremendous leverage. we should use it. >> a political analyst says it has an impact on how far g.o.p. speaker john boehner can go in debt negotiation. >> the existence of the freshmen linked creditability to john boehner when he says there are not enough votes for tax increase. >> reporter: president obama is also feeling the pressure from the left flank saying that social security and medicare may need modification to sustain them for the future generation. >> if there is a reasonable deal to be had on it, one i'm willing to pursue. >> that got a strong pushback from nancy pelosi and other liberals. >> today, the democratic women of congress have come together to send a clear message. we must protect medicare and social security. we will not support cuts. >> reporter: if there are cuts to the program in a final deal, it will be a tough sell to the president with the liberal base, which sees itself as cardigan of the entitlement. molly henneberg, fox news. >> shann
the cloud-- big clouds, small ones, public, private, even hybrid. your data and apps must move easily and securely to reach many clouds, not just one. that's why the network that connects, protects, and lets your data move fearlessly through the clouds means more than ever. >>> jack cafferty is here with "the cafferty file." >> in 2008 president obama promised to get all troops out of the iraq by the end of this year. after winning the presidency, he vowed to keep that promise. now is the deadline for military withdrawal approaches, he's apparently prepared to break that promise. gee, what a surprise. he's offering to leave 10,000 troops in iraq indefinitely. the white house says it's concerned that the planned pullout at the end of the year could spark violence and trigger militant attacks there. and don't forget all that oil. any extension of u.s. military presence depends on a formally request from the iraqi government. so far no request has been made, but the pentagon wants to give the prime minister and his government time to decide, so if they need the help, there's time to plan
will this guy vote? he will tell us. and only us. look at the corner of wall and broad on the big board the dow jones industrial average down 6 2 1/2 points. we focus on the markets for good reason, we are led to believe they are sort of waiting to see what comes out of washington. but, are we making a mistake if we go the other way and conduct national policy, political long term debt policy based on the market? charles says "be careful." >>guest: be very, very careful. you have a couple of things going on. first the scare tactics that everyone is using in washington, you remember when the tarp vote did not go through and the dow jones industrial averages with down 700 points. do you want that to happen? president bush signed tarp into law october 3rd, 2008, march 9, the dow jones industrial average was off 4,000 points so that was not a panacea. unemployment got worse. our economy got worse. we have to be careful about worrying about the knee-jerk reaction. because they have said it so many times and because harry reid compared it to the great depression and armageddon there will be self self
, some real big news, actually, because speaker boehner, it seems, may have a plan that will come to fruition, before 4 p.m. this afternoon so that the asian markets aren't rattled and it will involve sort of a two pronged approach. >> yeah, but the most important part of the two step process clayton mentioned there's going to be a short-term extension involved and the democrats have objected to that, as you know, from the very beginning, the president, nancy pelosi, harry reid all three last night reiterating they will not support a short-term extension. so it appears we are playing with some serious fire on this sunday. >> what does john boehner do, comes up and hands over the paper work, they immediately say no. listen to this, thises what mitch mcconnell has to say about this. there is bipartisan agreement on the need to prevent fault and given the unprecedented size of the debt ceiling increase, the president is requesting, this is not an easy process. and the effort to prevent default while substantially reducing washington spending will continue. >> of course, all of the co
. and they feel that the democrats have an ideological commitment to big government. what they would like to see is the government sweated down. that's the point they've been trying to make. there are honest differences and people have a very different view of what kind of society we ought to live in. >> but at a certain point, david, when there was a big deal on the table and if as you say the president could have brought nancy pelosi along -- i agree with you i think he could have -- the republicans would have gotten a great deficit reduction deal if they hadn't committed to the no tax pledge, right? >> but gloria, asking any party to commit to $1 trillion of tax increases is an awful big deal for a party that all along stood for lower taxes. and when they also feel a lot of these cuts are going to turn out to be illusory. their experience in the past they sign onto the bargains and they feel the democrats eventually end up getting what they wanted and what they wanted never materializes. >> there's a big difference between that and nothing. >> i agree. [ overlapping speakers ] >> so david, wh
and even a tad relief for some people, doug. >> you know what? more than a tad, wendy. i would say big-time relief for a lot of us out there right now, as we did have some storms roll through. and one of those storms in particular was so strong, it put out a boundary that really helped to cool everybody down. right now on doppler radar, you can see really only one storm around our area. a few storms back towards west virginia, the one in our location right now is right around prince william county around the brentsville region. but notice how it has cooled things down. 94 right now instead of 102 just a couple hours ago. the heat index? down from 121 to 100. we can deal with 100. we dealt with it before. current temperatures out there right now, you can see where the storms were, and where that boundary came through. 88 right now in leesburg. 88 in gaithersburg, but 100 in l plata and culpeper at 102. that's where we're dealing with the very high heat endetection readings. 121 in la plata. 123 in fredericksburg, but into the 90s, so very good news there. we're going continue to see nic

for the resurrection of a big debt deal. and his budget director says it's possible. >> i think there's still time to get something big done. the president has made it clear he wants to do something substantial. >> reporter: in fact, sources on capitol hill tell abc news that the president and speaker john boehner are again talking about more than $4 trillion in deficit reduction. boehner reportedly wants the president to lay out specific cuts to entitlement programs, social security, medicare, medicaid. but many republicans still doubt such a plan can pass. so, plan b. to avert the country from defaulting is being devised by the two leaders of the senate. it would give the president the authority to raise the country's debt ceiling on his own. >> it takes the pressure off all the politicians but allows us to pass a debt limit without making the hard choices that this country has to make. >> reporter: the standoff? republican eric cantor refuses to consider r x increases. democrat nancy pelosi won't accept benefit cuts to titlements. we visited cantor's virginia district. many want him to back dow

. there was a moment in time when president obama was talking about doing big things and being the guy and turnin turning this into a much needed win by a beleaguered president. we are seeing this fade away, we are seeing the administration give control of this discussion to capitol hill, just like with other things. martha: as you say, in previous confrontations when it came to healthcare, stimulus, all of that got pwubgd back to congress to work out the details. he looked like he wanted to be out in front of this. why do you think he changed his mind? >> reporter: it's really hard. being president is really hard but also doing a deal like this is really hard because the scope of what you're talking about isn't -- this isn't about money. we heard over the w weekend, or it's 400 billion on this or 800 billion on that, there is a chasm which exists between the republicans and the house, the conservatives from 2010 and president obama who is puerto rico the hreu ral wing of the democratic party and his victory in 2008. there is a rubber game that needs to be played here, that is the 2012 election a
